Audio: Dana Perino not sure what the Cuban Missile Crisis was

posted at 3:11 pm on December 10, 2007 by Allahpundit

Was it anything like the Bay of Pigs? Those international crises just start to blur after awhile, don’t they? Luckily her husband was able to offer some answers. You’re clicking here and skipping ahead to 1:20.

Tammy Bruce declares this not only a fireable offense but deleterious to Perino’s babe quotient. To which the big A replies by smiling, applying the Pickler/Burnett rule, and pronouncing the whole episode simply delightful.

Update: As commenter “Drew” says, it’s a double whammy:

It’s bad enough not knowing what the Cuban Missile Crisis was but then not knowing enough to never tell that story in public? That’s unforgivable, especially for a Press Secretary!
